    If you are the owner of a Moto Droid Charge, HTC Thunderbolt, or LG Revolution, and you use their mobile hotspot feature, you will like this news from Verizon. Big Red announced that they will extend the current mobile hotspot offer for these devices through July 6th. Here's the press release:
    I suppose one way to look at it is that they keep giving us extensions on this service to reduce the "sting" we may feel when they actually announce pricing for it in July. Either that, or they are having trouble actually deciding on a pricing structure. :)

    A software update will remove it?
    Methinks they accidentally set up the mobile Hotspot stuff to never expire :D

    It depends on whether the software update actually is what ends the mobile hotspot feature or if it's just something that comes at the same time. I doubt that Verizon would be so dumb as to end a promotion with a software update, but hey, dumber mistakes have been made.
